    About    

I am originally from Fort Worth, Texas.  In 1998 I received my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M University.  For the next 10 years I practiced in Palo Alto, California.  In 2008, I accepted an international position as a humane society veterinarian in San Pedro, Belize, on the island of Ambergris Caye.  The next year I opened the first private animal hospital on the island, the San Pedro Animal Hospital, along with the associated San Pedro Animal Foundation.  During my time in Belize, from 2008 to 2013, I learned the value of serving a community as its veterinarian.  I hope to continue my work in a similar role, here in Fearrington Village.

COVID19 Policy

Safety protocols will be taylored to fit each individual home visit.  Precautions may include pre-visit screening questions to determine how best to protect individuals at higher risk.  I may be wearing a mask and gloves and keeping the social distance as much as possible.  Ideal locations to work are the backyard, garage, or a screen room to increase ventilation.  I am in contact with the Chatham County Department of Public Health and will continue to consult with them as recommendations develop and change. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or special requests.
